Rebuilding Iraq


Are you more worried now about a terrorist strike on the US?

Federal, state, and local governments, as well as many US companies, stepped up security when coalition forces started bombing Iraq. Now that a major assault has been launched, are you more or less concerned about a terrorist attack on the US or its citizens?

Suzanne, Somerville

I am very worried about attacks here at home.

tricia, somerville


kathy, cambridge

I'm slightly more concerned, and plan to remain vigil, but not alarmed or frightened.

Christopher, Norwood MA

I am more concerned with the fact that our president is taking off to Camp David for the weekend during this war. How serious is he taking this conflict? What image does this give to the American people? Our president should not be going to a retreat - he should be at the White House. Typical Republican BS.

Kevin, Cambridge

I am concerned because so much of the nation's police are too busy babysitting overzealous protestors when they should be focused on homeland security. I support the right to protest but not when it infringes on my right to move freely through a city or to walk on the sidewalks without worrying about getting injured by some nitwit throwing rocks or bottles. How will these protestors feel when someone dies in the back of an ambulance because they couldn't get to the hospital in time?

Mike, Boston

I'm less concerned and I really like what I am watching on CNN right now!!!

Kris, Boston

Reminds me of the time Ricky said the Gulf War was a mistake. I nearly kicked his butt all the way back to Cuba.

Fred, Burlington

Neither - there is nothing to be gained by worrying over something which is equally likely to happen now as it was three weeks or three months ago. If terrorists choose to attack, there is little we can do about it except prepare and respond. If we can expect our men and women in the armed services to put themselves in danger for us, we should be willing to inconvenience ourselves for the sake of security and do our best to maintain our way of life here at home. Suck it up and drive on.

Richard, Boston

I'm sure there will be some repercussions. I am not terribly concerned-although always on guard, it's the time we live in. I firmly believe that if something was not done, the situation would be worse for my children and grandchildren. I fully support my President. I also agree that something worse than 9/11 could happen if action is not taken now. Thankyou thankyou thankyou to the troops working so hard to protect us.

CR, Boston
